Latvia Endangered Species

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for LATVIA in Eastern Europe lists two critically endangered species and four endangered species. There are fortunately no extinct species in Latvia, or at least none listed by the IUCN. The European Eel (Anguilla anguilla) and European Mink (Mustela lutreola) are Latvia's critically endangered species. Across a large swath of western Russia, the European Mink may be extinct. Latvia's endangered species are the Agabus clypealis beetle, Atlantic Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus thynnus), Freshwater Mussel Pearl (Margaritifera margaritifera), and Thick-shelled River Mussel (Unio crassus).
